JANE MARTIN FEELY, age 75, died on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 in Beverly Hills, Michigan. She was born Jane Martin on May 16, 1935 in Detroit, Michigan to Charles and Mary Louise Henner Martin. She had been a current resident of Beverly Hills, Michigan.

Jane attended Gesu School (Detroit), Immaculate High School (Detroit), and she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Mercy College in Detroit.

Mrs. Feely was a former Registered Nurse, working as a practicing nurse, and later was on the faculty of Highland Park Hospital's School of Nursing. Once her family started growing she left the workforce and was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and a caring homemaker.

Mrs. Feely's happiest times were spent with her entire family, especially when they all congregated together at Easter time at their Florida beach condo on the Gulf of Mexico. She also enjoyed bridge, golf (she had achieved a hole-in-one at the club in Florida), and world travel.

She was very involved with the Ladies of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, and was a life member of the Christ Child Society.
